Frequently asked question about getting to that raised area in southern Antico for flag #62. This video shows three different ways to cross the broken bridge. Try to guess what Method 1 is. Wink

Your narration was just fine. (I had no problem with your earlier narration either. I didn't think you sounded robotic at all.) I wish more people would narrate actually.

I love how you can say something about how the catch ledge method is so difficult, then you do it perfectly! (Yes, I know you did it many times, etc.)

Ha ha. Actually, I did hit it on my first try and didn't think much of it. In fact I just Sprinted down the rail and jumped without pausing to line it up. Later I had great difficulty doing it a second time. The angle is quite extreme. You'd think jumping straight across would work better.... shortest distance between two points and all that.

You won't even feel the blade.

Curses, my five vid record was short-lived (although it was nice to hear your voice). You have really gone to the dark side.

From Henceforth you shall be known as Stab Vader.

I did it with the horse my first time, but while playing today I found a way to get up just by climbing, and not anywhere near the bridge. I'll try to find it again sometime.

Nice! The subtext to this video is "there's more than one way to do just about everything in AC games". Whenever someone on GameFAQs begins a sentence with, "The only way to reach that flag is..." it makes me cringe, especially when I already know four ways to do what he's talking about.

That's why you don't hear me saying, "There are only three ways to reach this plateau." I was confident that there were other ways to get there, potentially without using the bridge. BTW, I tried parachuting from the top of the Borgia tower and fell way short.

You won't even feel the blade.

Not much to guess, because before you play the video, it says: "Method 1: Horse jump". Tongue

Never knew you could jump like that. Nice work!
